First Look at Lorraine Toussaint in Orange Is the New Black Season 2

According to BlackFilm.com, Netflix has released the some photos of Season 2 of their comedic prison drama “Orange Is the New Black,” which debuts in June.  Among the photos is the first look at Lorraine Toussaint, who joins this season as character Yvonne “Vee” Parker, a former drug dealer who is at odds with Red (Kate Mulgrew). Another is a Mock Fair photo with Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Anita (Lin Tucci), Nicky (Natasha Lyonne), Lorna (Yael Stone), Jackie Cruz, Leanne (Emma Myles) and Sophia (Laverne Cox). 

Based on Piper Kerman’s memoir ‘Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison,’ the series stars Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs, Taylor Schilling, Kate Mulgrew, Michael Harney, Michelle Hurst, Matt McGorry, Natasha Lyonne, Samira Wiley, Vicky Jeudy, Lolita Foster,  Uzo Aduba, Adrienne C. Moore, Laverne Cox, Dascha Polanco, Danielle Brooks, and Pablo Schreiber.

Orange Is the New Black follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiance Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates.

Sidebar: I love Orange is the New Black and can't wait for season 2.  I binged watched the whole season then did the same thing with House of Cards. Netflix is doing it.
